There's so much good information, tips, advice and camaraderie in this forum that I had to ask for help myself. We are planning our first big road trip in the first week of August from New York City to Berea, Kentucky where we are dropping off our niece at college. Traveling with us along with our 18 year old niece will be our two kids ages 8 and 3.
We have about a week to spare for the entire round trip. I would really appreciate if all you seasoned travelers could suggest an itinerary/route for us. We love the outdoors, National Parks, scenic roads, small towns, experiencing different kinds of cultures, seeing historical places.
Philly, Hershey's and the Amish country in Pennsylvania are some of the places I have been keeping in mind. We'd like to skip the DC area as we traveled there recently. I'd love to get some suggestions about other points in between.
Thank you in advance.
